Nunatsiaq News honours longtime editor Jim Bell with memorial bursary – Nunatsiaq News
Paper hopes Bell’s dedication to his craft, to the North will inspire future Inuit journalists

Bell died in August 2021, at the age of 69, following a shining career in journalism that began in the early 1980s with Nunatsiaq News.
